Yup. Alchemy "Sapphire" Ray.  Nice one! - it's been very very thin on the ground recently, rather than just a bit slim.

Alchemy is gorgeous.
Only made for a very short period, it was too expensive to sell well new - but the price merely reflected the high cost of production, so it was discontined.
I think this general principle applies to nearly all Dartington Studio.
I was watching it all coming out, back in 2000, waiting for the next design to appear.
The Studio was a fabulous idea, the designs, based loosely on high-quality old glass and using the old fashioned methods and materials, were stunning.

I only have one piece of Dartington Studio as I sold my others.   I agree with all you've said.  The quality of the pieces I've had has been perfect and the designs of the glass are superb for some of them.
